Fall Classes Start TOMORROW!

Did it occur to you that the December LSAT is 71 days away? “But wait,” you say with a gigantic lump in your throat, “aren’t we not even done with the September LSAT yet?” Nice work, detective. You’re right. Nonetheless, December is closer than you might think, and the LSAT is also harder than you might think.

Luckily, it’s a good likelihood that there’s a Blueprint course gettin’ all fired up tomorrow right in your backyard. You can still enroll today, and, even if you can’t make it tomorrow, that’s a practice exam — not a lesson — that you can take on your own. Lesson 1 is Monday or Tuesday for most classes.

The Way Forward

The December LSAT was this past Saturday, which, huzzah, you’re done with studying for the dang thing. But what if you feel like you didn’t do as well as you wanted?

First of all, did you really do as poorly as you thought you did? Or are you someone who is always convinced that you did terribly after every exam (“I swear, I failed that test!”), but it always turns out that you did fine (“Never mind, I got an A.”)? In other words, are you a Chicken Little, convinced the world is going to end because you might’ve gotten a few problems wrong (which is perfectly normal, by the way)?

A Pre-LSAT Pep Talk

You’ve waited for it. You’ve dreamt about it. You’ve lost friends incessantly talking about it and you don’t mind.

And here it is.

With the LSAT just hours away, students often wonder how to spend that last anxious day. Cram? Wind down? I’ve heard recommendations from all across the spectrum, and I think there’s some merit to each, but here I’ll divulge my tried-and-true personal strategy.

To LSAT, or not to LSAT. That is the question.

If you’ve been studying for the December LSAT, you are hopefully feeling ready and steady for Saturday’s test. But some of you are probably feeling less prepared than you’d like to be. What are your options? Should you hold off until February? Should you plan on taking the test in December and in February? Should you apply to law school this year as planned, or wait until Fall 2016?

How to Choose an LSAT Test Date

Choosing your LSAT test date is like falling in love. How do you know you’re ready?

You just know. When you know you know.

But actually that’s kind of paradoxical, because if you’re presupposing that you know, of course in that case you would know. But what does that even mean? Couldn’t you think that you know, even though you don’t know, because you’ve never known so you don’t actually know what it feels like to know?

Luckily, there are other guides you can use to determine when you’ll be ready to take the LSAT. Many people are probably wrestling with this question as the deadline to register for the October test is now just a month away. Take the October test or wait until December? Here are some factors to consider:

December LSAT: Instant Recap

We may not know much about the December LSAT, but we do know that it is over.

Today thousands of law school hopefuls filled LSAT testing centers across the country in hopes of earning an LSAT score that will catapult them into law school admission paradise. Were you one of them? What did you think?

So far, the consensus seems to lean towards a pretty standard LSAT overall. Some folks thought an RC section on perfuming was kind of hilarious, while others found it tough going. Likewise, an LG involving rugs was either cake or a real time-burner.

One Month Until the December LSAT

We’ve got about a month until the December LSAT. That doesn’t sound like a lot of time. In some ways, it isn’t. If you haven’t really started studying yet, you’re probably better off setting your sights on a later LSAT.

But this blog post is for those of you who have been studying. You’ve been working hard, but you’re not where you need to be yet. And now, holy ****, there’s only a month left.

A month is longer than you think it is.

Think of it this way: you’re cooking up a tasty LSAT meal (I promise, the analogy gets better). At this point, you’ve chopped a bunch of garlic and onions, and maybe diced some vegetables, too. You mixed up a marinade, and maybe there’s some chicken in it, sitting in the fridge. Perhaps you went all out and even made your own stock.

The point is: you’ve done a bunch of work, but you wouldn’t want to eat anything that’s in front of you (unless you’re a fan of raw marinated chicken with raw garlic on top). Even so, all the work you’ve done will contribute to the finished product. Sometimes it takes more work to prep the ingredients than to put it all together.
